                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRICORUS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Coming up with a solid 1-2-0 outing, WORLD BLADES 13 has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for MONTENEGRO, who flew up 24 points in the 
rankings after mashing ZELMA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was ZELMA, who dropped 19 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with MONTENEGRO.  Our battling duelmaster MOONDARK has 
managed to hold the title, fending off WACHICHU's none too subtle advances.  Better 
luck next time, AMAZON ELITE.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that DARK HORSEMEN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of DARK HORSEMEN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause AMAZON ELITE beats feet every time 
DARK HORSEMEN smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' 
category, CM - SUBSTANDARD was mashed by HARGERD, who let CM - SUBSTANDARD know that 
killing members of DARK HORSEMEN is a no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with 
little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Two losses, and a death, to managed gladiators, three wins over standbys.  Why is
this not surprising?  The arena is emptying out again, I would guess because everyone
is tourney-timed now?  And we wish them good fortune there. -- Moondark, default
duelmaster

Substandard -- That pretty well describes Wolfrain as a gladiator.  Oh, sure, MAYBE
he would have improved.  But just as likely, or more likely, not.  So... I won't say
you did us (or him!) a favor, but there's always a chance the new one will be better.
A good chance, frankly. -- Moondark
